Understanding the impact of industrial development on water quality in Peace-Athabasca Delta

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Mitchell Kay, Biology PhD candidate and graduate of Waterloo's Collaborative Water Program, is creating a baseline to measure natural variation caused by development in northern Alberta.

Supervised by Water Institute member Roland Hall and Wilfrid Laurier University professor Brent Wolfe, Kay is using the information preserved in sediment cores to create long-term records of past variations in hydrology and contaminant deposition to construct baseline conditions before industrial development, and evaluate the effects of major energy projects on the Peace-Athabasca Delta. This research will help to fill current knowledge gaps and understand the impacts of industrial development.
